Yogi's Music news and pix - Johnny Conga, RedHotz ,and Martin N'Terry!

Hey Folks!

Good news and pix!

My good friend and fellow musician Johnny Conga is bringing out his new band Sabor Tropical.

(an 8 piece NY style Latin Dance band)
May, 17 2007 (and all Thursdays in May) at CLUB BC'S
17917 Bothell-Everett Hwy, Bothell, Washington 98012
Cost : NO COVER this week!
Also featuring from Puerto Rico, "El Cantante"-Danny Olaizola.
Salsa Instructor on sight....Vamos a Bailar y Gozar!

Those of you who know JC know he brings us the authentic salsa and Latin jazz sounds from the streets of “Nuyork Rico”, the beaches of Miami and the LA scene. If you don’t know JC – then what’s up, slacker? Everyone else does! He’s played with Sergio Mendez, The Jackson Five, Mongo Santamaria just to name a few.

So come out and dig the Latin soundz! I’ll see you there this Thursday! Here’s some pix of “JC” playing with my group last March (pictures of JC by Janet O’Brien).

Pix from Yogi’s latest “sideman gigs”:

I had the great pleasure of appearing recently with the Red Hot Blues Sisters (who by the way are up for more awards than you can shake a stick at over at the Washington Blues Society’s Awards night at the Triple Door).

We played the Nooksack Indian Casino in Bellingham. The crowd loved us and we won the jackpot (OK, that last bit isn’t true, but the first part is!)

Here’s some pix from that:

1. Teri Anne Wilson, Guitar; Suze Sims, Vocals and percussion; Patrick on bass
2. Teri Anne Wilson, Nominated Best Blues Guitarist, Washington Blues Society
3. Yogi on keyboards (as usual!) and versatile drumset heavyweight Andre Thomas.

Then I had the great pleasure of appearing with the African reggae artist Martin N’Terry from Burkina Faso West Africa at the University of Washington Intercultural Night at the UW Bothell Campus.

Here’s some pix from that show!

1. Martin N'Terry of Burkina Faso
2. Yogi and Drummy (trick question ...guess what instrument Drummy plays?)
3. Martin, Yogi, Tamlin (Guitar) and Dragon (Bass).
4. Yogi, Martin, Tamlin

OK, that's it for now! I'll be buggin' ya with the next upcoming gigs soon!
